You can’t visit Ocean City without hitting the beach! The Ocean City Beach Patrol has some safety tips for your time in the surf and sand, and details on how you can join their team!
Even the most experienced skippers can run into problems if they don’t take precautions to sail safely. That’s why the Ocean City Fire Department is working to share the dos and dont’s while you’re dabbling along the waters of Delmarva
It was nearly 110 years ago that the community realized the need for fire protection in the Ocean City area. That’s when the community stepped up and formed the Ocean City Volunteer Fire Company.
Crosswalks, littering, and awareness of your surroundings are all very important factors in staying safe while you enjoy your time Ocean City–we’ll show you why!
Nothing says summertime like a warm July night, eyes to the sky, and the bangs, booms, and sizzles of a fireworks show. As beautiful and fascinating as these shows can be, they are several times more dangerous, and should only be carried out by the pros – with a lot of help from your friends – the first responders.
First responders include those of the furry kind, too. We’ll introduce you to Jappie, and hear why he’s a top tool in the fight against crime.
And today in the Mr. Food Test Kitchen…
